Season comes to an end for Tarsha Sharks

The Tarsha Gale Sharks again showed glimpses of their best but were unable to come out on top of the Wests Tigers, going down by 22-14 in their last round match.

Already out of contention for a Finals berth, the loss capped off a 2022 season where the Tarsha Sharks were competitive in most matches, included this weekend against the Finals bound Tigers, but managed just two wins from their seven games played.

While a disappointing end, the Sharks unearthed some talent for the future, with many set to push up and represent in the senior ranks in the years ahead.

Following a strong start, with Skye Brennan scoring the first points of the match, the Sharks jumped out to a 6-0 lead.

The Tigers would respond, two tries taking them out to a 10-6 lead, before Emeline Taufaeteau scored for the Cronulla side in sending the teams to half time level at 10-points apiece.

In a seesawing battle the Tigers would retake the lead with a converted try, the Sharks bounced back through a four-pointer to Esther Kautoga to narrow the margin to 16-14, before a late try to their opponents sealed the result.

In what was a keenly contested encounter, three players were sent to the sin bin during the match, two Sharks players and one from the Tigers.

The Sharks finished the season in ninth place, the Tigers fourth following their win.

The Junior Rep and Tarsha Gale Cup Finals begin this weekend.
